Who is the course for?
Managers with responsibility for the restoration and sustainable management of degraded forest land.
What we cover
We help managers to understand the social and political context of their own projects, because there is no single solution to restoring degraded forest land.
People often think that restoring forest is simply a question of planting more trees, but this is not necessarily the answer. Our course helps managers to evaluate which approach is best for them.
The programme is tailored to develop to strengthen relevant skills and knowledge, including:
- How to identify the drivers and underlying causes of forest degradation, and to integrate these into specific project aims.
- Understanding and evaluating the range of restoration approaches.
- Designing effective restoration plans, which incorporate diverse stakeholders.
- How to measure impact.
The TBA was invited by the WWF Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) to design and deliver a course on restoring forest ecosystems for EFN grantees from six countries in Africa.
